NACTEC students construct traditional King Island kayak
A handful of students from the Bering Strait region learned entrepreneurial and traditional kayak building skills during a four-week long Northwestern Alaska Career and Technical Center course. The end-result was two kayaks, one a Greenlandic style, the other a King Island kayak. The King Island style kayak will become a permanent fixture in Kawerak’s Katirvik Cultural Center.
